I think this is overly idealistic. It is true that for some it is the dominant part of their art practice, but not for all. And it certainly is not a qualifier for being a 'Real' artist. I for one could care less about changing the world.
If you mean by non-satisfaction, the always distant final/perfect artwork, then I would agree. But for me, my art is a vehicle for my small steps forward as a human being. It challenges me to look harder and to step back from rushed judgement. These are qualities that would serve us well.
